Kim Whitby B.Ed (Hons)Art, MA Fine Art.

I have a teaching degree and teach locally, for organisations, galleries and museums and The Art Academy in London.

I teach artists of any age, from infant aged pupils, to enthusiastic adults….here’s a rather random little gallery of students work, some kind words from former students and additional information.

“Art Academy watercolour and ink course – Kim Whitby is an excellent teacher.  She is well-organised, uses appropriate resources, manages time well, has an easy and friendly manner and freely offers the benefit of her own considerable skills and experience.During the Watercolour and Ink course at The Art Academy I felt that I learned a lot about materials and techniques, produced some work with which I am pleased and thoroughly enjoyed myself at the same time.” GH@AAL2019

“Through this 10 days class I feel I’ve learned so much about Watercolour and Inks and, most importantly, how to find my own language. Everything in a fun and supportive environment in which we learned a lot. Kim encouraged us to tackle large scales, tried some Plein Air and quick sketches from life: a class that taught us to explore painting and drawing beyond the medium itself.” SL@AAL 2019

“…good because [the] pace and the exercises are all great. The day progresses well and builds on prior week. Great slides too!” AAL 2017

“I enjoyed my 10 week course with you at the Art Academy very very much – even though I found painting in watercolours my greatest challenge……….I found my time with you and all the other students to be a gr8 experience.  You demonstrated so many ways to paint, including figure drawing and still life.  You are an excellent,  gifted, and patient teacher and were able to teach us so much about this complicated media.  Anyone who’s thinking of learning to paint in watercolours should book  up early with you in order to get a place and enjoy this wonderful relaxing fun time……..Cheers to you  Kim.” DY@AAL 2017

“I’m learning lots – teaching [us] concrete techniques….incremental….lots of feed back!!” AAL 2017

“Interesting, varied and well presented” L@LAGM
